Wild wicked what?
Umm. There are beads, at least some beads. Lately, as three bead work UfOs languish, I'm relearning crochet, just beginning to learn how to crochet with beads, and teaching myself felt making.
Ever get stuck and just need a change? I have the ridiculous feeling at times that I'm being unfaithful to my beads. Or maybe, more realistically, easily a thousand dollars worth of supplies are gathering dust, as I lust over alpaca/silk yarn in colors like "nutmeg" and "lagoon" or haunt the pages of Corriedale and Marino roving. Ohhhh, "Autumn grape leaves!"
Just as I have no time at all - ideas and designs are racing through my mind at warp speed. I've had to practically nail myself to the chair to sit and finish anything... I'm excellent, however, at starting.
I don't know if it's my age or the age - the hyper, shifting, dissembling world in general - but I have such a sense of urgency. So much to learn. So much I want to make, to try...
Anyway, my beads are there (there, there babies, I always come back)...but meanwhile, this is a little shot of what's developed lately.
Hope you are all well and surviving the Christmas season...
